Kremmling Days revved up to Keep on Truckin’ June 19-21
The Kremmling Days Celebration scheduled for June 19-21 will be based on the theme “Keep on Truckin.”
“In spite of the economy, we’re going to keep on moving,” Kacey Beres, executive director of the Kremmling Area Chamber of Commerce, told the Town Council on Monday night.
New spectacles to enjoy at the Town Square Park will include an Airnastics Amusements KidZone. In addition, Timothy’s Toy will provide a relaxing train ride through the streets of town on Friday and Saturday from Central Avenue.
Various live musical acts will be sponsored by Grand Mountain Bank, Mountain Parks Electric, Arctic Cat and Alpine Motor Sports and the Allington Inn and Suites, while buffalo burgers, grilled corn on the cob, corn dogs or funnel cakes and ice cold Pepsi products will keep revelers’ appetites in check.
Check future editions of the Sky-Hi Daily News for a complete listing of live music that will be performed during the course of the three-day event.
Vendors will also be filling the park with unique and fun crafts and toys for children to enjoy. They can also create their own art works with Dr. Spin Art.
Of course, the Kremmling Days staples will return with the Friday night Fireman’s BBQ Rib Dinner and live music. On Saturday morning, start the day right with the Kremmling Classic 5 Mile and 3 Mile fun run/walk, brought to you by Big Shooter Coffee, the Bureau of Land Management and the Applegate Group.
